Learning Outcomes

Purpose Statement

The Master of Engineering is a non-thesis professional degree, based primarily on course work and/or on an engineering project designed with the guidance of a faculty advisor to address a need or problem specific to their engineering field of study (Civil, Environmental, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering).  This degree program is designed to provide a broad, practice-based education.

Student Learning Outcomes
Students will:
 
Demonstrate the ability to apply graduate level critical thinking skills to formulate and solve advanced civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering problems.

  • Acquires knowledge on advanced contemporary engineering topics and computational tools specific to civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering.
  • Develops the ability to identify, formulate, and solve relevant advanced civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering problems.
  • Develops the ability to synthesize, explain, verify, and justify solutions to complex civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering problems. 
Demonstrate the ability to, independently and creatively, design, plan, and conduct complex civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering projects;
  • Assesses the state of the art in the field of study.
  • Applies, independently and creatively, appropriate engineering theories and tools towards developing a viable solution for the project.
  • Designs and conducts activities specific to the project.
Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively the results of a comprehensive research project through oral presentations and publications.
  • Creates a report reflecting the integration of knowledge acquired through the project.
  • Delivers an oral presentation to peers summarizing the work performed on the project and its outcomes.
  • Synthesizes and presents the relevance of the engineering project in both technical and non-technical terms.
